a border security would be beefed up and the government would improve its tracking of current visa holders. the senators also want to grant more green cards to highly educated immigrants and would allow more lower-skilled workers into the country especially for agricultural purposes. finally, the agreement calls for an effective verification system to crack down on employers who hire workers in the country illegally. in 2006 and 2007, similar efforts to fix the nation's patchwork of immigration laws failed under both republican and democratically controlled congresses but democratic senator chuck sheumer of new york said this time will be different. >> the politics on this issue have been turn upsidedown. for the first time ever there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> ifill: indeed this new effort comes on the heels of last year's election in which president obama won seven of every ten hispanic votes in his victory over republican mitt romney. senator john mccain of arizona said that's the key reason his party must now get on board. >> election

? >> i would say little to nothing. i mean, you had a little bit of throat clearing about how government can't be the answer to every problem but it was a bold, strong progressive push. i think he learned a lesson were last time where he came in 2009 and tried to hold the g.o.p.'s hand and get something done but then got zero from the house in his stimulus bill. it's time to convince people, push ahead with your agenda and let the republicans do what they will. >> do you think we'll see this happen in the next 18 months. it does seem that the president learned something in the last four years. keep in mind the president said it's time to end on focusing on childish things. he said we need to stop the political name calling but the president is much more realistic, he understands that there are people who want to battle him on every issue. and the president was essentially rallying his base, liberals women african-americans, gay, latinos, look, we have big fights coming. in order to honor you i need you to honor me by working together in for the collective good and by the way we'll have s
.s. in the world. if there is a humanitarian crisis, it is justifiable to enter the country to stop the government from doing that. but if its is you are just unseating leaders because they're not friendly to u.s. business interests or you are replacing them with leaders who are firmly to u.s. business interests, that it does become imperialism. bowlines are really blurry and we have to watch our step. military industrial complex in this country is really powerful. i don't want it to spill over to the rest of the world and become the imperialists. host: a few tweets -- and joseph writes -- that is assessing the passed four years. i want to read from the oliver north peace that we mentioned earlier from the washington times, talking about hillary clinton and her assessment of her work. it says it has created opportunities for u.s. citizens in places that have benefited our nation. oliver north is the host of stories."ar mike is next on the republican line in indianapolis. caller: in the last four years, the only factor in the cap of hillary clinton is the miles she has trouble. a relationship to in
to be the nation states where we already are seeing cyber intrusions' both against our government and against private sector, but increasingly common on state actors will have more capacity to disrupt and to hack into put out false information to accuse the united states of things that can light five years before we can put them out. so, you know, i think it's important we have a really thoughtful comprehensive review about the threats of today and tomorrow and that will help guide the committee and the senate and the administration working together to answer them. >> thank you madam chair and onto something that hasn't been done. i'm going to yield back the rest of my time. >> we will not go to mr. perot of texas pittard >> thank you mr. chairman and madame secretary for your service to the country. gordon roland from oregon, frederick from texas and victor am i district of texas, three americans overseas killed not in benghazi, that killed at a remote gas facility in algeria. killed in my opinion because they were americans. over the last weekend, myself and others have tried to get informa
to that u.s. for training. there were some who led the military coup, which overthrew the elected government. that is worrisome for us. we asked ourselves questions. did we miss the signs that this was happening? was there anything that we did in our training that was -- that could have been done differently and caused a different outcome? i think that the answer is a little bit of both. as we look at this from a purely military standpoint, we were focusing our training almost exclusively on tactical or technical matters. how to operate various pieces of equipment and how to improve effectiveness or tactical operations and the like. i see that there kernel is a paratrooper. -- colonel is a paratrooper. all of those things are very good. we did spend the requisite time focusing on values, ethics, and a military egos that says -- e cos that says when you put on aim u of the nation, you accept responsibility to defend and th protect that nation and abide by the legitimate authority that has been established duri an conductor sells to the rule of law and to see yourself as servants of people of
-long debates about the role of government for all time but it does require us to act in our time. (applause) for now decisions are upon us and we cannot afford delay. we cannot mistake absolutism for principle or substitute spectacle for politics or treat name calling as reasoned debate. we must act knowing that our work will be imperfect. (applause) let us of us now embrace with solemn duty an awesome joy what is our lasting birth right with common effort and common purpose with passion and dedication let us answer the call of history and carnto anncertain future that precious light of freedom. >> rose: joining me now from washington, d.c. al hunt of bloomberg, jodi kantor of the "new york times," john dickerson of "slate" and cbs news. here in new york, mark halperin of "time" magazine. al, let me start with you. before we talk about the speech, just talk about the ambience of this inauguration. >> these are wonderful weekends. this is a long weekend. whether it's republican or democrat people who come are in a great mood of celebration, they're walking the streets. i love inaugural weeke
many departments throughout government, has numbers of challenges. we saw systemic issues that nide to be addressed and they're in the process of being addressed right now. our nation has budgetary constraints, which means that in all of these departments, creativity is going to have to be utilized to make sure we make the most of what we have and making sure that our u.s. interests are put forth. we have a world that is a dangerous world. and things continue to come over the transom. sometimes it's at surprising times. i know as secretary of state, you're going to have to lead our country in addressing those as they come about. i do hope that you'll work closely with this committee as you have worked very closely with this committee over the last many years. and helping us work with you to make sure that as we move ahead, we move ahead together. and that it's seamless. we have many challenges, and i know on monday, president obama said that america will remain the anchor of strong challenges in every corner of the globe. and we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity
been killed in u.s. drone strike inside yemen. yemeni government says the attack of four militants but the claim has not been independently verified. the attack comes one day after those of anger of the drone attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakist from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the de
a volley and government. the democrats typically say, well, government can do this or can't do that ask so it's really a series of arguments over the role of government and the second thing i'm curious to know about is how tough they were in a pretty partisan atmosphere. he has gotten tougher over the past couple of years with the opposition. how feist you he is he during the speech. >> things people have picked up in this run up to this inauguration is that the president four years ago in his speech came tout and he actually made a comment about how he was going to to bring an end to the petty grievances and false promises in washington. now four years later was that a false promise? >> yes. i mean, the president, i think, understandably confident and an historic election and all of that perhaps overstated what could be done. this is one place where he seen having come fiercely short and it's in bringing that sense to washington of bipartisanship and of working together and overcoming partisanship and his defenders and supporters will say oh, the republicans have been intransient and smal
of the constitution, it was to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. now with government getting more powerful and people weaponize themselves, what's happening at the same time more of our tax dollars going to help the government more powerful. somebody has to puzzle that out for me. >> beam me up scotty. dennis kucinich is the first liberal that seems to actually have an understanding of the second amendment. >> well, and the congressman, to his credit, said correctly. the supreme court recognized the second amendment right to bear arms, you have to say what's the aim of the legislation here and the problem with senator feinstein's bill not only is it broader than the 1994 provision the assault weapons ban, they call it an assault weapons ban, but that's not what it is, it goes much further. it would be unconstitutional if this legislation became law the supreme court would strike it down as unconstitutional. sean, there's another thing here that we have to be really, really concerned with and that is the political move of what's happening. do you remember right after the tragedies
that like many departments throughout government has numbers of challenges. we saw systemic issues that need to be addressed and they're in the process of being addressed right now. our nation has budgetary constraints which means that in all of these departments creativity is going to have to be utilized to make sure we make the most of what we have in making sure that our u.s. interests are put forth. we have a world that is a dangerous world, and things continue to come over the area. sometimes at surprising times. i know as secretary of state, you are going to have to lead our country in addressing those as they come about. i do hope that you'll work closely with this committee, as you've work very closely with this committee over the last many years, in helping us work with you to make sure that as we move ahead we move ahead together and that it's seamless. we have many challenges, and i know on monday president obama said that america will remain the anchor of strong challenges in every corner of the globe. we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crises abr
. with the government also help, but have still been putting some up -- with the government's help, they have still been putting some up. certainly it is a huge thing that should not be going forward. >> $90 billion a year, that is what you and peter to make, right? [laughter] a lot of people think that we need government policy to guide this stuff. to be fair to boone pickens, but he was arguing for was the federal mandate that commercial vehicles had to use gas and would provide subsidies to switch the engine over. that is not terribly different from what barack obama thinks about, with using solar batteries. happy dreams and unicorns stre. do we need guidance from the department of energy or any sort of federal policy? can the market take care of it on its own? >> it ought to be decided in the marketplace. a lot of this takes a long time. horizontal drilling took 20, 30 years. the time it takes to produce confirmations. it ought to be decided in the marketplace. everybody converting over too cheap, natural gas for their cars? the fact is that it is not always going to be cheap. once people start payi
that we do what we can as a federal and as state governments to protect our citizens is primary. >> schieffer: you're going to have a pretty important job coming up here shortly once john kerry is confirmed as secretary of state. every indication is that he will be. you're going to have to appoint somebody to replace him. >> i've heard that, (laughs) >> pelley: give us a clue. >> no clues today other than it will be somebody who is aligned with the president's ageneral the, will be a good partner to the president and the majority leader, which is important. i always remind our citizens back theme the main event is not the interim appointee, it's the election of a new senator in the special election. that's what we need to focus on. >> schieffer: i take it will be a democrat? >> it will be a democrat. the. >> pelley: governor patrick, thank you for joining us. we have in the capitol rotunda a very special guest today, valerie jarrett, senior advisor to the president and i day air is the person in washington who has known the president and first lady longest, being a long-time fri
brownback, bob jindal, that is where you alcee conservative principles govern. in washington, a half to boast -- both oppose the obama administration, collaborate, and in the house, they have to figure out what it means to the beat -- to be the majority of one body of congress while the presidency and other house and congress is held by the other party. >> in the last five elections, in four of the 5, republicans have not had a majority of votes. even though george w. bush served two terms, he did not get a majority in 2000 and barely got one in 2004? >> i'm not one to minimize the danger and challenge of the republican party. losing 25 senate seats this year -- president obama only got 51% of the vote. the economy is looking great. a lot of democratic incumbents looked people ribble. the senate cannot be gerrymandered. it looked like a clean a snapshot of the country. for republicans to win 8 waterboarded -- while democrats one -- republicans will 8 and democrats won 25, that is dangerous. we need to figure out what went wrong in 2012. i'm not for endless naval gazing. there are ple
to the korean government. the north last month successfully launched a satellite that put it into orbit. it was a test of technology that could one day deliver a nuclear warhead capable of hitting targets as far as away as the u.s. north korea's top governing the body, the national defense commission, warned today of another test coming of a higher level they say. and their declaration in part says a new phase of the anti-u.s. struggle that has lasted century after century will target against the u.s., the sworn enemy of the core reason people. setting the u.s. requires force not words as jungle law as the rule of its survival. reference to higher level nuclear test most likely refers to a device made from highly-enriched uranium which is easier to miniaturize and mount as a warhead, martha. martha: very strong words, steve. so what is the u.s. reaction to all this? >> reporter: so far no reaction from the state department or the u.s.. the u.s. envoy was in seoul and held a news conference and he told reporters this. quote, whether north korea tests or not it is up to north korea. we ho
personal understanding that we represent not just states or governments, but also people. i want to ask john why he loves the senate. he said it is the pride he feels in trying to get things done for people. for three years now, he has been working quietly to help a father from massachusetts, whose two sons were kidnapped and taken to eject. john even called former president mubarak and had a screaming match with him about it. five times he has been to egypt and every time, colin has been at the top of his list in every meeting. every senator has -- it is what we do. we fight for people back,. as secretary, john will understand that and bend over backwards to help us do that. he will be a terrific bridge from the hill to the administration. i know that john kerry cares deeply about our country and our national security. i know he believes in the good that america can do in the world. he has seen its and he has lived all his life. from since the marshall plan in action with his father, to volunteering to serve in the military and traveling all these years as a senator. america is and acc
of the national debate, but i think it's too early to make that decision. >> host: government bullies, second book by senator rand paul, how everyday americans are being harassed, abused and imprisoned by the feds. .. is a memoir and a history book. in the book you talk about your personal journey and you are very candid about your life, and you also cover new insights as a historian to the life and legacy of dr. martin luther king, jr.. what prompted you to write the book this way? >> guest: well, i wanted to write something for the anniversary and this is 50 years of my life and king's legacy and my life coincides with my coming of age, so part of it was to do those two tasks. i felt that my life had been connected to the king legacy, and i felt there was something about my life that needed to be told to understand how king impacted me and how i got involved in this amazing journey of editing team newspapers. >> host: its an excellent reading and you and buy your of the same generation, and why too was coming of age in the 60's. the book i might say was bittersweet to me because i knew dr. king,
cut spending. if that means shut down the government, shut down the government. >> i think in williamsburg we saw one possibility, which was paul ryan and others within the republican party saying to the caucus, we can't win this fight publicly. let the debt ceiling go because we're going to be blamed for the economic fallout. let's push that down the road kick the can down the road, as they say, and try to get some budget out of the senate and try to get some real spending cuts in the next three months. so paul ryan and others within the caucus are seeing a longer game here than is this freshman senator from texas. >> but if you ask paul ryan what he wants to do on gun control, he would say, i don't want to do anything on gun control. you've talked to moderate republicans -- >> what about registration? >> the only thing they might do is something on registration. >> background checks. >> that's it. no idea that you're banning weapons. no chance. >> registration is the worst. >> put it on tape. 5 0% chance it passes. >> good because hunters need 30 bullets
the troops returning on that overthrowing elected government. but to my mind a great template of how to do this successfully comes from somebody that we tend to forget these days, but we should remember, it would lansdale, the quiet american who was once a legendary figure. he was a former advertising man who joined the air force in the cia and was sent to the philippines in the late 1940's when they were facing a rebellion, one of the major communist uprising of the post-world war two time. and what he did was, he did not send an army to back him up. he simply drove out to the boondocks to get to know the people of the philippines. nasa and the embassy like semiofficial americans do today. he went out to figure out what was really going on. the most important thing that he did was identified a great leader who could leave the philippines out of this with some support. that was ramon, a filipino senator when he encountered in. he was pushed to make him the defense minister and then the president's. he was this great leader who routed out a lot of the corruption which was causing people to
assassinated, it is a different perspective, it is a different situation. we don't believe that a government should be involved in that, but at the same time, like that same people, like the israelis -- i know that in israel, the jewish people, you tell them that hitler were alive, i think that there would be a lot of people trying to get him -- i guess, the same similar situation with the cubans. c-span: have you known a lot of people in your life that have said the same thing, that they would be glad to kill fidel castro? >> guest: oh yes, many. c-span: how come no one has ever gotten the job done? >> guest: some have tried, and fidel has a very, very good security system. in the past he had a czechoslovakian who ran his security force and he moved from one place to the other. for example, when he was in havana, i saw him moving near the molicome area with five bullet-proof mercedes, all exactly the same, with the same paint so you could not tell one from the other, and he, i believe, rode either in number two up to number four, in between, so you never knew which one of the five cars he w
with the economy, social issues and government spending. she'll have four more years in her high profile position as first lady and agenda, all while making a fashion statement doing it. it sounds so shallow, doesn't it? pulitzer prize winning journalist robyn jiovan, good morning. thank you for being here. >> good morning. >> it always sounds so silly when you talk about the first lady's fashion but there is meaning behind it. please expound on that. >> yes, you know, i think it's one of the things that frustrates people within the fashion industry and probably a good deal of people who cover it. there seems t be this idea that these dresses, these suits that people wear and that they buy somehow just sort of drop out of the sky, that they're made by elves or something. we're talking about a $350 billion industry, an industry made up of a tremendous number of small businesses who, that employ actual live people. so to have a conversation about the impact of a first lady really underscoring the american fashion industry is really a conversation about a first lady who is celebrating american busin
to the president, the comprehensive immigration reform and the governments are bringing their issues to the president. we are not bringing our issues. martin luther king's issue. >> guest: who is stopping us? it's one thing to say president obama is not responding but what are we doing to put the issue so that we have to respond? to me we are not using that leverage. everyone knows that it's the black vote. the latino vote but it was decisive in the last election. when, each of these groups that played a role, that's why in my view when i came here for the inauguration i said the day before the inauguration i give a speech and i said the important day is not tomorrow. we celebrate that. the important days the day after tomorrow. what are we going to do then and for a lot of people they went home and celebrated. >> host: it is a milestone. i never thought i would see a black president. so it is to be we've talked a great deal about the movement and very little about you but i think we are getting to know you're here in your comments. you ended dr. king's papers. there are several peep
by the demonstrations in birmingham, which revealed the police dogs dogs and the fire h. suddenly the government had to act. the first great accomplishment of lynn johnson son, that not much attention is given to, is the magnificent way he assumed the presidency. this was a nation in crisis. we had a cold war going on. in which the -- there was huge fear of russian missiles heading our way. our president had been killed. we didn't know whether it was the russians who had kill him or castro or -- it was great, great uncertainty. and johnson came to that job, reassured the nation, took the reins of government, and during that first year, he was president, passed the historic 1964 civil rights act, which outlawed official segregation in the south, made employment discrimination a crime. it was a very, very -- probably the most important advance since lincoln signed the emancipation proclaimation, and during that year, if johnson was mr. inside, and some outside, because he gave some inspirational speeches -- king kept the pressure on. whenever he thought that the congress was going to falter, that they
at a cost provocations that i think are necessary, we see that the federal government and state of florida acting as they should act to investigate. we've seen the police chief. they are happening they stir up emotions, but unfortunately of the black agenda in america today is driven by emotions, inability and those that they are with no issues within the scabs off. >> host: professor miller, what do you teach? >> guest: and an assistant professor of government, so i teach american exceptionalism, a primary class and also associate dean for the online programs for the school of government. robust and criminal politics, prelaw programs incise naturalization. >> host: is america an exceptional nation? >> guest: yes, i believe it is. i don't believe it is for any other reason than it's built on an ideal and it's an idea of the nation strives and strains to live up to, but at least this one in our history we've always come out of these conflicts better than we were when we went into that. it's tragic sometimes has the civil war proved and sometimes it takes a long time, but as long as we are a
the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party? facebook.com/carolcnn, or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be right back. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair has the fastest retinol formula. to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles in just one week. neutrogena®. >>> good morning. thanks so much for joining us. i'm carol costello. stories we're watching right now in "the newsroom" at 30 past the hour. apple shares expected to dra
yesterday. we don't know what kind of government will be formed or where they will go, but my prayer is that perhaps this can be a moment where we can renew some kind of effort to get the parties into a discussion to have a different track than we have been on over the course of the last couple of years. and i would like to reserve all of the capacity to be able to do that, so i'm just going to stop with what i've said, but unilateral efforts are not helpful. we oppose them coming and we -- i don't think symbolic or other kinds of efforts are what we need. we need real negotiation, we need real results, we need progress. saxby three. two weeks ago some of us returned from afghanistan seeing the operations there. you described well i think in your opening statement about the progress being made to the afghan security forces to take over. if we take back and look at iraq for a minute, some of us traveled there in a couple of years before that conflict ended, and we saw some of the building the was going on in particular for planning for a more robust presence than we currently have. th
and in his frustration the administration said, we were elected to govern and whether a national labor relations board or whatever, they wanted to put people in place to govern. i hope what happened thursday night, chris will change this. we had a bipartisan, strong bipartisan vote for some rules changes and included in those rules changes were changes in the way we treat nominees, not only for the courts but for these agencies. let's have a day in court for each one of them, and let's have a hearing and let's have a vote. >> chris: i want to move on to another subject but briefly, i understand the president's frustration, that doesn't mean he can just rewrite the constitution. >> listen, i worked in the congressional branch, legislative branch of our government and i certainly didn't hold up our team, model, whatever it happens to be, whoever the president happens to be, but i want to put it into perspective. we have seen this president denied the opportunity to make appointments. over and over and over again. because one senator happens to hate a particular agency or a particular per
